Thank you to the Fine Art America customer from Montrose, Pennsylvania who purchased an 8x12 inch print of the Amish sterilization process.
The Amish used to sterilize bottles for canning by placing them on fence posts in direct sunlight. Notice the burned ends of the posts indicate the internal temperatures reached during the process. Camera Information: Camera Nikon D700; ISO 200; Aperture f/5.6; Shutter 1/160 sec. Ref: OH190728. Price Code C.
Your comments are welcome.
This scene was taken at Yoder’s Amish Farm in mid-Ohio. Yes, this group is related to our Yoder, KS Amish. The farm is open to the public and well worth the visit.
Our guide explained that, after washing the bottles, they were hung on the fence where the inside temperatures in the sun reached sterilization levels. You can tell that the temperature get really hot by the burning of the tops of the fence slats. Hence, the title for the picture.

This was about the last day of shooting during a 2009 trip celebrating our 40th anniversary and my retirement from Cessna. This trip took us through New York, past the St. Lawrence Seaway, Niagara Falls, to Ashtabula. OH and back home.
Thanks to the Fine Art America customer from Glendale, AZ who purchased an 11x16 gallery wrap canvas print of “Sterilizaition”.
